New Tracking Stock Offers Cheap Play on VMware

0

The newly created tracking stock for VMware that will be issued by Dell as part of its $58 billion deal to buy EMC looks like a cheap way for investors to play VMware.

Shares of the tracking stock, Dell Technologies Class V (ticker: DVMTV), have been trading in the when-issued market for about two weeks and now changes hands at $44.68, roughly a 39% discount to VMware’s (VMW) common shares, now fetching $73.33. VMware is a software company best known for its virtualization products.

The VMware tracked shares are being issued to EMC (EMC) holders as part of Dell’s cash-and-stock acquisition of EMC. Dell announced yesterday that the deal received Chinese regulatory approval, the last hurdle to the transaction, and will close on Wed. Sept. 7. The ticker on the tracker will change to DVMT after the deal closes.

No one can accuse eBay of holding on to things out of nostalgia.

Two days after shares of MercadoLibre (ticker: MELI), an Argentine online marketplace, traded to an all-time high, eBay (EBAY) announced it would sell most of its stake.

MercadoLibre subsequently announced that eBay would sell 7.1 million MercadoLibre shares to the public at $168 each, for a total of $1.19 billion. The underwriters also have an option to purchase up to 1,026,062 additional MercadoLibre shares from eBay. If that option is fully exercised, it would mean that eBay has sold all its holdings (for a total of $1.37 billion), down from an 18.4% stake before the sale.

The Baltimore-based small-company specialist defines “small” as businesses with revenues of $250 million or less. “It just makes more sense,” says Keith Lee, co-manager of the $3.1 billion Brown Capital Management Small Company fund (ticker: BCSIX).
